"Why I am going to Socialist Summer School."

“It’s an opportunity to network with other people who have the same interests. Also, I’d like to know what other people are doing. We didn’t know a lot about other incidents of racism happening across the country. We thought this was just a Penn State thing. So I’d like to hear what others are doing in the fight against racism.”

“It’s an opportunity to network with other people who have the same interests. Also, I’d like to know what other people are doing. We didn’t know a lot about other incidents of racism happening across the country. We thought this was just a Penn State thing. So I’d like to hear what others are doing in the fight against racism.”
-Sharleen Morris, vice president of the Black Caucus at Penn State University, speaking on the fight against racism on their campus in “Fighting Racism in Bush’s America.”

“I’m participating at the Socialist Summer School because it is an opportunity to include the Palestinian struggle among other struggles for justice, peace and equality around the world. Come and hear about the struggle of the Palestinian people for their rights and learn more about how you can become an ally and activist on behalf of a just peace in the Middle East.”
-Souad Dajani, Grassroots International, speaking on “The Struggle for Palestine.”

“I hope to sound out the political mood and get a sense of the possibilities for radical agitation during the Bush slump.”
-Doug Henwood, author of A New Economy?, speaking on “The End of the Miracle Economy.”

“I am attending Socialist Summer School because I see it as important way to build the mass movement. Historically, effective movements for social justice do not happen without trained organizers. This conference will help people develop the skills, analysis and fire in the belly needed now more than ever to replace the dying love-of-money system with the new love-of-life system.”
-Kevin Danaher, Gloabl Exchange, speaking on “After Quebec: Where does the Global Justice Movement Go From Here?”

“I am new to the activism work that I am involved with and it has been a positive experience. I joined the ISO shortly after the presidential election and I have learned so much since then. I want to share my experiences with others and I also want to learn about the other struggles that are being fought.”
-Yvette Romero from the LA-East branch of the ISO.
